You would think with a name like ZEISS that would be an indicator of quality. NOT! There are engineering issues with this camera that have been discussed at length on other forums. One being the inherant problem with dirt or some other anomalous debris getting on the platen and inside the lense. It is a recurring issue that affects photo quality regardless if sent in for repair. Maybe they forgot to design an "o" ring or something? Never had this issue with the big three or any other camera. My 1956 Leica runs circles around this thing and it uses FILM. It's a shame, that even my camera phone blows this thing out of the water.

Great outdoor pictures but awful at occasions like weddings where the light may be dim. This is even with the flash on

Slow on continue shots
This is camera is almost perfect one for me, except it is two slow for continuing shots. It seems to take long to get focused on the next shot and even slower if the auto flash light is being powered up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I previously had the ZS3 series camera which I LOVED. When I needed to replace it, I naturally went to the ZS8 after reading several reviews about poor image quality on the ZS10. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the ZS8 was, contrary to its specifications, not even as good as my ZS3. I hope that a firmware update comes out which allows me to reduce the compression on the images and turn off the anti-hand shake feature (like my ZS3 could do). Another option would be a RAW format. Overall, it's still a good camera, but I am disappointed that the newer camera keeps making me long for my old ZS3...

I love this camera!
from Indianapolis, IN
I have an expensive SLR, but wanted something smaller that I could pack around in my purse. We took it to Vegas and to a Steve Martin concert. It was awesome! I love the zoom because it can really get up close and personal. There are so many options to use also for the type of pictures you are wanting to take. It took great shots from the airplane, and it took great shots in the concert with no flash. I was amazed when I was able to get the pics developed on how great they looked.

This is a replacement for a Lumix I bought 7 years ago and loved -- to death. 16X Leica zoom! And faster!
